Transfer of Flightplan to Majestic Q400

10 posts in this topic

Hi all, with the recent improvements in flightplan exporting capabilities, is it now possible to export flight plans to non-gps  systems such as the Majestic Q400. If so, how. Your help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Rolf,

does Majestic use its own flight plan format? Do you have any information on that or is there any hint in the manual?

Alex, it appears that it uses its own flight format system. Universal 1E FMS. Someone (Traveler Pilot) has been working on an FPR converter that will allow flight plans to be imported into the Q400. It is still in beta I believe. I hope this is helpful.

thanks for your interest.

Regards,

Rolf

Hi Rolf,

It is not too difficult to add an new export format once I get some documentation in my hands.

I found and tried the FPRConverter but apparently it needs a certain Q400 database file which I don't have. Can you send a few examples of these files? That would be very helpful.

Alex, I am sorry but I am not sure what to look for and where to find it. If you can give me a hint I can see if I can dig it up.

Regards, Rolf

Hi Rolf,

I found out that SimBrief can save these FPR files but it is not a text format which makes things more complicated. Have to see if I can squeeze this into the next release.

Alex,

 

I have not used the Q400 since P3D V4 came out in May

but I have 4 database files dated 10/20/2016 and also the main nd.mdb which is

the main Microsoft Access Q400 spreadsheet which is 161MB long

do you want me to send them to you
